auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
polls show mcauliffe several points ahead of the republican attorney general ken cuccinelli. so why bring the big guns in at this point? well, to rally the base and make sure democratic precincts show up on election day. joining me now is politico's alex isenstadt. an article in politico today really dives deep into this talking about the turnout of black voters. he doesn't need to match obama's performance but the dropoff cannot be too steep. we saw the president there hammering that point home repeatedly today. i want to play another portion of what the president had to say. take a look. >> the real reason you're here is that the single redeeming virtue of political extremism is people show up on the other side. so are you going to show up? this whole election is about which virginia shows up. >> about which virginia shows up. alex, explain when we talk about the youth vote, and as we dissect that apart, how important it is for young african-americans and college students to turn out on november 5th. >> right. well, it's a week away from the election. and for terry mcauliffe parti
, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the
to stump for the gop's ken cuccinelli. even ron paul is expected to follow in his son's, rand paul's, footsteps perhaps proving that copying others does, in fact, run in the family. still, none of this is ex-pebpe to help cuccinelli or his campaign where his latest scandal involves the venom he once spewed in a newsletter sent to reporters. with the president scheduled to campaign for democrat terry mcauliffe this weekend, the only question now appears to be whether cuccinelli loses by double or single digits. joining us now, msnbc political analyst, the great professor michael eric dyson. this race, sir, has been a snapshot of what is hurting republicans nationally. we have a candidate who performs very poorly among women. whose hatred for homosexuality is matched by his contempt for the affordable care act and seems obsessed that oral sex is never performed in public. does that seem like a winning agenda to you? >> only if you're interested in multicultural -- on halloween. tho that's not a treat, that's a trick. absolutely, martin. you articulated by the republican party continu
to be in the hands of the democrat, terry acall live. "the washington post" poll showing him up on ken cuccinelli the republican attorney general there 51-39, libertarian candidate polling at 8%. there's a big gap among women. mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 24 points and i under the president will be going into virginia this weekend, jim. >> if i were the president that's what i would do. we're up by 12. no chance that democrats wouldn't win this seat. i would go in there and help claim part of the victory. mcauliffe is nervous. you want help from groups that helped obama. there's no mystery in the outcome. inside the white house worried that the clintons are getting the attention for spending so much time on this race in the state, building up their political operation and will they get the credit for the victory? partially. at the end of the day this was a superior candidate in an environment that very much favored democrats. >> jim, let me ask enthusiast, from outside of virginia not following the race close lui it makes no sense to me a libertarian candidate who run against cuccinelli whose co
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is
, it's idea eelg with a very conservative ken cuccinelli in blue new jersey, electability with the conservative and pragmatic christie leading the ticket. one is doing better than the other. there's an interesting poll that came out in "washington post" that said 64% support mcauliffe and voting against cuccinelli. this idealogical extreme rhetoric from the ticket in virginia has been such a turf off to the moderate voters, they base beingally handed this on a matter. >> why you at home, even if you know nothing about virginia politics, krystal can weigh in. this is a battle for the republican party's soul right now. and there's a contingent that called romney republican in name only and feels they need to push more and more extreme. there's a swath of america looking for moderation in the republican party. i had a conversation with senator mccain where he said publicly several times, we need moderates. so those two races are described showing us that tension playing out in real time. it will be significant. >> seeing the clintons and potus and rand paul reminded me the na
, for instance, the campaign manager of ken cuccinelli, when they were talking about the shutdown, they were having a hard time, and now they're talking about obama care and his campaign is doing better and better. the shutdown was not the right way, in my view, but with obama care, i would have taken the senate and the white house and replace it with something that's going to do a better job for the american people and let them keep the insurance they were promised they could keep in the first place. >> you mentioned ken cuccinelli running for governor in virginia. the new book is called "double down game change 2012." a lot of political intrigue. one aspect, governor, when you had a family owned plan, you actually voted against it. you questioned whether you should stay in the race and whether you could ultimately win. there is an argument that comes through in the book with some republicans that with the stakes so high in the 2012 election, did you not show enough fight? did you not want to win it enough? how do you rebut that charge? >> there is no question but that i wanted to win it. n
cuccinelli's numbers are back. >> because of obama care. >> especially because young people are suffering because of the law. young people are suffering. premiums are up 45% for recent grads. 200% for a 30-year-old. we have to reach out and be advocates to fight against the law. we have to defend young americans. what's happening is we are in a recession uh now. we have to stand up. >> how old are you? >> 24. >> i'm 25. >> i'm 51. >> a young person in your 20s nowadays, you have high unemployment. kids are moving back in with their parents. unless your parents pay for everything you don't have the same hopeful attitude as our parents had. that's a lot to deal with. we don't need another bill. my generation will pay the $95 penalty rather than another bill for insurance. student loans, it's tough to be a young person in the united states. >> you're a great political fundraiser. what impact does it have on 2014? i think the rate shock, the impact of cancelled policies and a president repeatedly promising something that isn't uh true, i think you cross a line here. >> i think it will be a bi
